    Pre-production update...go to p.2 - Storyboards --Nov. 27...

    So much stuff on this site...man I've been clicking around for weeks and I'm still drooling...
    So's I get a bit of momentum going, I'll start with some ol' studies.
    This is what I did this summer when I got bored and didn't know what to draw.
    I'd flip open a national geographic and speedraw in ink. The idea was to warm up by doing these as fast as I could
    ....not letting any room for patience and analysis but more of an
    intuition thing

    I really suck at architecture so I'm promise myself to post more like this and try to get GOOD at it....this one's gonna get colored...maybe today
    Pre-production update...go to p.2 - Storyboards --Nov. 27...

    Here's another thing I suck at....Painting... so you guys are gonna get to see what I'm really bad at....I'm gonna need help All these speedpaints I see on this site really blow my mind and I'm learning lots so far, so her's the digital in order of execution

    Pre-production update...go to p.2 - Storyboards --Nov. 27...
    trying out brushes and getting familiar with ps....lost patience

    Pre-production update...go to p.2 - Storyboards --Nov. 27...
    Not getting bogged down with construction but more or less trying to get values, volume and lighting right... and brushes

    Pre-production update...go to p.2 - Storyboards --Nov. 27...
    Got this picture in the deepsea ref. forum. Helluvalot o' fun

    Pre-production update...go to p.2 - Storyboards --Nov. 27...
    This is my latest study, I try not to spend to much time on these, mostly because I want results quickly and trying to experiment as much as I can with
    brushes... starting to understand something

    Pre-production update...go to p.2 - Storyboards --Nov. 27...
    Posted this one in DSG...(it got pretty crazy) promise I won't be redundant with my future posts when I get proficient with posting ( My first thread ever !!)

    I try applying the speed painting principle to traditional media... never went to art school so'm trying to simulate an education here.
    Pre-production update...go to p.2 - Storyboards --Nov. 27...

    So this is my go at it..... it won't be as daily as it should be but I'll try to stay constant.... be posting more stuff soon !!

    I'm a newbie at posting so if IM doing something wrong...lemme know

    Most of these drawings will get removed later on...when I get more regular and start posting REAL daily's.

    Here a a few pages from a collective comic book me and some friends are doing. It's pure improv ( with a set of minor rules ); once you get the comicbook folder, you read it up and then do your page all while trying to keep the storyline constant.....You have one week for one page....it's fun

    Pre-production update...go to p.2 - Storyboards --Nov. 27... The first page is the rough version 'cuz I likes it better then the inked one.

    Ugh !!

    I often get to a point where I don't know how to improve on a painting anymore, and eventualy lose patience because I feel I'm only doing the same thing OVER and OVER again.
    So I saw ladykillers the other night and grabbed a few stills. Really nice comp. and lighting in many scenes. The cohen brothers have a nasty esthetic sense to their storytelling....the movie itself was.....bah! I'll save that for the lounge forum.

    Here's an unfinished piece that I feel is coming along well. So if I feel good about, I might as well post it before I do something EVIL to it. The next post should be a close to finished version.... maybe someone with good intentions will tell me what I should do before it all goes terribly wrong

    Nice pages dennal. I used to warm up to (and still do) the NG last summer. I like your linework and figures, keep doing the paints, I know it's agonizing, i'm trying to do it me-self
    cheers, keep posting

    Really enjoying your inks, and the architecture stuff is looking good. I've also noticed improvement in the paintings. Try using harder edged brushes and also less saturated colors. Hope that helps.

    YaaHOOO, my first c&c's

    Steak-tron- Thanks for the feedback and encouraging comments. Seeing this site and witness how people struggle and improve tremendously on their work really got me going and made me realize how out of touch I am with an artistic community. Hope to see you here again !!!

    Groover - Thanks for the advice, you're gonna have to check up on me to see if I'm listening.

    My Life sessions are starting tomorow night, I can hardly wait !! I should be posting model stuff here at least weekly.

    These are Flash illustrations that someone commissioned from me last summer. They were done with ref (of course). Didn't know I could do that sort of stuff. Took me 1h30 per illustration..funstuff with vectors

    Here's today's second go at it. I desaturated the colors and as suggested, tried a hard edge brush. But I think I get lost in the steps I have to follow because this painting feels very irregular ( add a bit of shadow here...a bit there and oooopps forgot to do that detail.....now what color was I using ??)
    Anyway. don't think I'll have time to work on it again today

    If you forget the color you were using, remember there's no shame in eyedropping colors that are already in the painting. While you have the brush tool selected, holding down the alt/option key conveniently changes the brush to the eyedropper tool. Just a tip, in case you didn't know that already

    Rude Awakening !!

    Awright, so today was my first life model sesion since juin, and before was...........oh way back when, who knows. I've got lotsa work to do but I've done it before. I just have to keep at it. The session itself is fun, it's a great gang that attends...really laid back. My only gripe is the poses rarely go over 5min... sometimes it's ok but sometimes I wanna dive into the drawing more.
    But hey! I digress

    Groover - thanks for keeping an eye on me and thnx for the tip, the eyedropper selects the combined color not the original one. But I guess it's like trad. medium and you just can't get quite the same tone of red or whatever. I got bored with that project so I'll give it a rest and post a finished version soon.

    Didn't get ANY time to work on the face properly OR the values as I'm struggling with proportion and construction. But I'll pick up speed eventually.

    Quick sketch I did while waiting for the bus.

    These are studies that I SHAMELESSLY copied of Graig Mullins work. I don't understand how this man thinks "lighting". IT'S BRILLIANT !!! I warmed up with these to try and get a smooth yet rough flow to applying colors. I tried to keep them under 20 min., won't be posting studies like this often but just thought it was worth showing once.

    PARt III !!! Ok, so now I got bored with this one so I finished it off best I could. This study was worth it !! learned a lot and I'll keep doing some more and trying different approaches.
